I just got this laptop, dell5537
1.6GHz Intel Core i5 4200u
6GB DDR3L
1024GB 5400rpm Serial ATA
15.6-Inch screen, AMD Radeon HD 8670M GDDR3
and frankly speaking it runs most of the games fine on medium or low settings but on ultra settings the frame rate is crap .So i decided to upgrade the
cpu and i want to know whether the AMD FX-8350 would be compatible if not can u suggest some other cpu having a better clock speed that i can upgrade to?

most laptops CPUs can not be upgraded. One you have an Intel chip and I don't think you can put an AMD chip on a board that has an Intel chip. Second is the heat issue. If you can even put in a faster processor, the heatsink most likely wont be big enough to keep the CPU from over heating.
